The weather is very cold these last few days, and the birds have been eating us out of house and home! they swarm the feeder, and come to the window to say "more please" if the feeders empty!
The Mourning Doves come in packs of 20 or so and take over the feeders, the ground, the tress,and the wires!
This photo shows a Blue jay (upper right) and a Flicker (right of feeder) trying to get at the food too!
I love the little Junkos with their yellow beaks and fluffed up feathers.
I truly believe the Chickadees use up more energy flying back and forth with one seed, than they gain in eating!
